James Bond is in Austin, and he’s becoming quite the Texan

James Bond’s drink of choice is usually a martini, (shaken, not stirred), but when he comes to Austin, he prefers a Bloody Mary from Guero’s Taco Bar.

Pierce Brosnan has been filming a series for AMC in Central Texas this month, and in his downtime, he’s been exploring all the best that Austin and the surrounding areas has to offer.

According to his Instagram account, he’s been living it up on South Congress, at Guero’s:

Sunday morning S. Congress …Austin … Great town

And he got his Texas history on at the Bullock Texas State History Museum:

And he even had time to play a round of golf at Barton Creek:

Brosnan is playing the lead in the upcoming AMC series “The Son,” a “multi-generational epic tale of the story of America’s birth as a superpower through the bloody rise and fall of one Texas family,” according to Deadline. The series is based on local author Philipp Meyer’s 2013 novel of the same name.  

Brosnan replaced “Jurassic Park“‘s Sam Neill, who was originally cast in the role.

“The Son” is scheduled to air on AMC in April 2017.
